Disclaimer

These regulations are presented as a quick reference tool. While they are believed to be accurate, they are not certified copies of the regulations and therefore should not be relied upon for legal interpretation.

Also, linked on-line guidance documents and "overview" summaries of regulations are not the regulations themselves.

The official written regulations published by the Department of State are the official source for NYSDEC regulations.

Questions concerning a particular posting should be directed to the Contact indicated in the posting.

The navigational links, headers, and footers on each page are not part of the official language of the regulation, but have been provided for the convenience of the user. Whether or not a regulation is contained in one or more computer files is indicated by brackets and numbers at the bottom of the header. (e.g. "[page 2 of 7]" means that the file on the screen is the second file of the 7 files which contain in the Part).

Where available, links to official guidance documents are provided. Guidance documents are not regulations.

For particularly long and/or complex regulations, detailed indices, which are also not part of the official language, have been added for user convenience. Such are indicated by [brackets, italics, and a change in font appearance or size] over general text. In addition, certain complex regulations may have separate "overview" pages containing concise summaries of the regulation. "Overview" pages also are presented for user convenience, but are not part of the official language of a regulation.

Any questions concerning a particular posting should be directed to the Contact indicated on the page.

In writing about a regulation, cite as "6 NYCRR Part __" or "6 NYCRR §__".
